Logged Descriptions  (logged by 19 users)ByDate of Ascent
3rd hill of 5 on a mountain bike ride from Gatehouse of Fleet, climbing Craiglowrie and Fell of Fleet then cycling around to the west side where i ascended direct from the track. A few streams, some brash but otherwise ok terrain with nice outcrops. I used a bit of the woodland to speed up. Descent as outward. Starting to get dark but felt i could squeeze in two more so carried on to follow a series of tracks to get close to Craigwhinnie.Dazingdale12/10/2018
From Fleet of Fell on a near enough direct line. Some very rough ground and lots of brash - not pleasant. Returned back over Fell of Fleet for the car.jonglew26/03/2018
From Raiders Road (£2). Knee-deep water in river after a dry spell.mae23/05/2016
After dry spell still difficult to ford river. Found old pair of abandoned boots to ford with - now on E side. Climbed from East but descended better ground to below track summit S.Eddie23/09/2014
